Spring has Sprung at Cherry Springs: Here's some quick photo spam from my recent long weekend at Cherry Springs State Park up in Potter County. The weather was bright & sunny and unseasonably warm with day time highs approaching 85F. Add to that scenario some relatively low water for this time of the year along with a forest canopy that has yet to leaf out and you have all the makings for a slow weekend of freestone fly fishing.
Yours truly releases another small but hungry brook trout that just couldn't resist rising to a Hendrickson dry fly. While this wasn't a serious fly fishing trip by design, and we only fished one stream for an abbreviated amount of time, we had certainly hoped to move a few larger fish while we were there. Such are the whimsical vagaries of trout fishing, I guess.
